Glad We Agree

Looks like I misinterpreted Ramesh Ponnuru's point, but it appears that we are in fact all on the same pages when it comes to alliances. That's good. I understand his point about taking one of Paul Saunder's arguments and using it to support an isolationist point of view, but also think that that doesn't reflect Paul's own position about the value of alliances.

It is also worth noting that the U.S. has both formal and "implied" alliances with a number of non- or semi-democratic states (Pakistan, for instance, is designated as a "major non-NATO ally" while India does not enjoy this status) while having no such alliance relationship with a number of democracies.
